I was going to start "brushing up" on the Bard but realized he didn't even start writing until after 1577 so how the heck could it be any good?

Nothing after '77 is any good.

Plus, isn't there some rumor that he didn't actually write the plays? Would make sense with all this '77 stuff.

There may be a type of creepy universal tangent here. Think about it: we know the Dead were crap after 1977, but if you look back, any year ending in 77 was marked by bad things happening or starting. In 77 AD, the Romans develop a simple method of distilation making it much easier to become an alcholic. In the year 1277 AD, Bishop Tempier issued a list of condemnations of 219 propositions taken from the philosophy of Aristotle, and forbade their teaching in the Sorbonne. The 50 year reign of Edward III ended in 1377. Charles the Bold, Duke of Burgundy is killed by the Duke of Lorrainer's Swiss mercenaries in 1477. Peter Paul Reubens (German artist) died in 1577. The Sixth War of Relegion broke out between the Catholics and the Hugenots in 1677 and Charles II of England made Henry Purcell court musician (and we all know what a disaster that was). Vermont declares independence from New York in 1777 (know as The Great Ben & Jerry Rebellion). Crazy Horse was killed in battle in 1877. History has spoken: all good things will cease to be after '77. Good thing I wont be around to see what calamaties befall us in 2077.

Judge Wapner comes on at 3. Yeah, can't miss Wapner, yeah. K-mart sucks, yeah. I'm a good driver, yeah.

I'm sure my folks couldn't be prouder that so many years of higher education have resulted in a brain so full of useless facts that I think it may explode.

Althea? Underrated? Would that not be somewhere between blasphemy and sacriledge? 3/23/87 doesn't ring a bell but any Althea is a good Althea! I never met one I didn't like! :)
